Thursday Thoughts: On Training, New Mizuno Shoes, and Roadrunner Sports

You may know, if only by the name of my blog, that I live in the desert. That place that is as hot as hell in the summer, but beautifully warm and sunny in the winter. Where the Snowbirds come to spend their winters. Well, it has been cold in my desert lately. I know for those of you living in the snow this may sound like whining, but hear me, it was 26 freaking degrees this morning when I went for my run!

This was me bundled before the run. Underarmour base layer, polar layer, jacket, headband, tights, warmup pants. Oh, and heavy gloves.

Can you tell I’m wearing two pairs of running pants?

For my Thursday Thoughts vlog this week, I am rambling about running, training, new Mizuno shoes, and Roadrunner Sports, my favorite running store of all time. I bought my very first pair of running shoes from them. That was a long time ago.


New year, new shoes, new plan. Exciting!

    Props to you for getting out there in the cold when you aren’t used to it! It’s even hard for me and I am used to it. There IS something refreshing about it though, right? You do a good job with the vlogs! So many folks make them awkward but yours are very personal and friendly, love it!

    I would whine if it was 26 degrees, and I live in Ohio, we’re use to that sort of weather! at least you still got out there!

    I’ve just gotten back on the training bandwagon. It was a nice 2 months off says my mind, but my body revolted by putting on far too much weight since I still ate like I was training. I love to come here for inspiration! Keep it up!
